Austin art blog ‘Bout What I Sees has organized an art competition as part of the East Austin Studio Tour 2010, Eyes Got It! is an open call art competition inspired by Bravo’s Work of Art: The Next Great Artist and other arts based, reality-TV game shows.
In contrast to traditional juried call for entries, the panel of local arts professionals will conduct their review process in front of a public audience and after 3 rounds of elimination will award one artist a solo exhibition at Pump Project Art Complex in early 2011.
Through this public critique and its subsequent exhibition, ‘Bout What I Sees seeks to demystify the juried show process, illuminate critical reviews and attract attention to artists within the Austin community. And have a good time!
Panel of judges includes:
- Sterling AllenArtist; Founding Member, Okay Mountain
- Rachel KoperProgram Director, Women and Their Work; ex-director Gallery Lombardi
- Risa PuleoAssistant Curator, Contemporary Art, Blanton Museum of Art
3 rounds of increasing critiques with one winner awarded a solo show at Pump Project Art Complex.
